  1. It's been a while since a movie made the game of love this winning.
  2. Fever Pitch works. At times, it works brilliantly.
  3. 75
    A curious mix of smarts and schmaltz.
  4. 60
    Has a slapdash feeling to it.
  5. 60
    If you're rooting for Barrymore and Fallon, then why not their team? In the movies, there are enough happy endings for everyone.

    The movie is so soggy and anonymous, I had to remind myself that the Farrelly brothers, Peter and Bobby, directed it. It's sad to watch the kingpins of gross-out try to dial down to cute. Swung at and missed.
  7. 20
    Ultimately, it's a bore. Don't see the movie – read the book, play the game.

    Not a ten, but still an ah-mazing movie. Hated the thing with the pregency and the Red Sox booty pj thingy but still, great movie. I believe Not a ten, but still an ah-mazing movie. Hated the thing with the pregency and the Red Sox booty pj thingy but still, great movie. I believe that's it easier to see when your a Red Sox fan but I'm a Yankee fan asnd still loved it - in fact my friend and I made fun of the bodies of all the baseball players thorughout the movie and had a blast. Go fricking see it everyone! Expand

    I gave it a three cause I could see how it might be appealing to some people. Yet it really isn't funny at all and its so cliched. I I gave it a three cause I could see how it might be appealing to some people. Yet it really isn't funny at all and its so cliched. I watched it with about six friends and it seemed every five mins we were correctly predicting what would happen next. Jimmy Fallon is really annoying in just about every movie. So I already have a low opinion of him. This movie is a real dog. Collapse

    I love baseball. I hate this movie. Jimmy Fallon is a complete idiot in nearly every movie, and this one only exemplifies that even more. The I love baseball. I hate this movie. Jimmy Fallon is a complete idiot in nearly every movie, and this one only exemplifies that even more. The movie is so scripted; you can easily guess the outcome, and what will happen next. Not to mention it is overly exaggerated. I know there are some extreme Red Sox fans, but this is ridiculous. Expand
